is not unique to arkansas. fema and the president have declared 53 major disasters this year and each one represents the same emotionally devastating loss of life and property. expensive damages to small businesses and critical infrastructure and costly disruptions to an already fragile state and local economies. recovering from a major disaster is expensive. in these challenging economic times the impact of repetitive disasters threatens the fiscal health of state and local governments. we can't rely on the federal government to fill the gaps left by insufficient state and federal funds. we are all facing tight budgets and difficult decisions and fema is not immune to this reality. in addition to a tighter budget, the day-to-day operations the scope of disaster operations has led to the projected $3 billion shortfall in fema's disaster relief fund. in light of these economic realities we must ask ourselves, how we can do more with less, how we can improve the efficiency of our response and recovery efforts in the wake of these disasters. moreover, how can we build back smarter, stronger,

amendment in order. my amendment is simple. if fema makes a mistake in designing a flood map, communities can be reimbursed for the cost of mounting the successful challenge. currently, communities that dispute fema's flood elevations can hire a private engineering firm to get a second opinion flood map. while this may sound like an attractive option, it puts a lot of the smaller communities in a very difficult financial position. hiring a private engineering firm is expensive and cost prohibitive for many small communities. on the one hand, if the community decides it's too expensive to get a second opinion, homeowners are forced to pay higher or in some cases needless flood insurance premiums. on the other hand, if the community does mount a successful challenge to the original fema map, homeowners are spared from having to pay the higher flood insurance premiums, but the town still must pay the cost associated with obtaining that second map. now, i heard from many small communities that are forced into this tough situation, including the town of hollister, massachusetts, which is in my
